DJ blurb on 20th Century American Poetry (1966):

The variety and brilliance of contemporary American poetry are reflected in this new selection by Conrad Aiken.  Eighty-one poets are presented, and of these, twenty-three now appear in an anthology for the first time.  Mr. Aiken's awareness of what is relevant, rather than what is merely "modish," makes this anthology a critical as well as historical record of the growth and major tendencies of American poetry during the first half of this century.
